Biography

An internationally acclaimed choreographer, Rosalind Newman has created a body of more than 70 works. Her original New York company, Rosalind Newman and Dancers, had major seasons in New York at the Joyce Theater and Dance Theater Workshop. The company toured the U.S. and Europe performing in many prestigious international festivals and venues such as Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, Paris International Dance Festival, Holland Festival, in London at the Dance Umbrella and Sadler’s Wells, and the Academy of Arts in Berlin. The company received funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, and foundations.

Newman was founding artistic director and choreographer of Dance HK/NY in Hong Kong, which had highly successful seasons in Hong Kong and on international tours to Taiwan and the United States, including New York. Support came from the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, Asian Cultural Council, and Shanghai Tang.

As a senior lecturer in modern dance at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, works choreographed for the Academy dance ensembles were performed in Hong Kong and toured to festivals in Korea, India, the Philippines, China, Australia, France, Czechoslovakia and the U.S. Newman has also set her works on several companies, including London Contemporary Dance Theatre, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and Diversions Dance in Wales. She has taught widely as guest artist and teacher at the Rotterdam Dance Academy, Dance Forum/Taipei, Guangdong Modern Dance Company/China, and London Contemporary Dance School.

Her fellowships and awards include the Guggenheim Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and Hong Kong Dance Alliance Award for Choreography. Newman was the keynote speaker on Global Dance Today at the annual American Dance Guild conference in 2004, and was awarded a Distinguished Alumni Award from the University of Wisconsin, School of Education, in 2006. She was course leader in the master’s graduate program in choreography at the Laban Centre in London and is presently on the faculty of the Conservatory of Dance at Purchase College.

Recent commissions include a work for Dancing Wheels in Cleveland, Ohio, a company of integrated performers with wheel chair performers, and works performed in Hong Kong.
